SWILLINGTON INGS BIRD GROUP

… All 2017 Sightings

Sightings for November

Hard on the heels of last month’s second Yellow-browed Warbler was our second Dartford Warbler on 11th. Given the number of Yellow-broweds arriving on the east coast in October that bird was not entirely unexpected, but Dartford is still a very rare bird in Yorkshire so to have had two here (out of only about five in the county) is exceptional.

The Warbler aside, Great White Egret on 3rd, 11th and 24th, a second Raven record for the year on 13th and a Common Scoter on Bowers Lake on 17th and 18th were the other monthly highlights.

Whooper Swans were seen on 2nd (two), 4th and 13th (three) and a total of over 900 Pink-footed Geese moved through on three days. There were single Black-tailed Godwits on 1st and 15th, Ruff on 5th and 6th (three), Jack Snipe on 15th and 18th and Green Sandpiper on 6th, 10th and 11th. One or two Woodcocks were flushed off the hillside on a couple of days. Up to six Water Pipits were present, mostly at Lemonroyd, up to ten Stonechats and up to 100 Fieldfares round Swillington Park.
